iPhone 7 Plus to Feature Dual-Lens Camera System?

Posted January 27, 2016 at 3:41pm by iClarified
Apple is working on a 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus that features a dual-lens camera system and another version with a single camera, reports KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The dual-lens model is based on technology from LinX, an Israeli company acquired by Apple last year. LinX had successfully developed miniature multi-aperture cameras designed for mobile devices. The camera modules are nearly half the height of a standard mobile camera and are capable of creating stunning color images and high accuracy depth maps.

Kuo says Apple could use the LinX Imaging algorithm to bring a 2-3x optical zoom function to the iPhone 7 Plus while sidestepping the traditional bottlenecks associated with compact camera module (CCM) assembly.


At this point it's not clear whether Apple is just prototyping two versions of the iPhone 7 Plus or whether the company plans to release both the single lens and dual-lens versions. Perhaps the dual-lens could be an upgrade option, similar to opting for Cellular on the iPad.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7 later this year. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

But will it be flushed if this iPhone is going to be even thinner? If only this was a chance the 6(s) would get this and it would probably be flushed.
